Tedisco counts his chickens

You may have heard that James Tedisco, the Republican candidate in the too-close-to-call race for New York's 20th Congressional District, stepped down this morning as minority leader of the state Assembly.

An Associated Press story about the move implied Tedisco wants to devote his time to monitoring the counting of thousands of absentee ballots in an election where he and Democrat Scott Murphy are separated by only six votes out of 154,000 cast.

But if you want the real story, look no farther than the subject line of a press release from Tedisco's office that was e-mailed to media outlets around the state today: "Tedisco begins transition to Congress."

Talk about arrogance!
